The dating game can be really fun but we all know how quickly it can turn into some drama. The fun part is when two people connect and have great chemistry. The drama happens when a person feels entitled to a relationship even when the other person clearly shows that they are not interested in the same.
I know a lot of people preach to singles about starting out as friends first and taking things slow, but if you ever wonder about how your best relationships start, check your dating history.
Some people have started out as hook up buddies and it got serious. Others put a lot of time and energy on focusing on building a “solid” foundation so the relationship had the best chance of survival. The reality is that I have seen relationships start in many ways and still manage to be a healthy and happy one.
My friend Ray told me his best relationship was with a woman who approached him and asked him out. Yet he still claims that women that take the lead are not his type. So, he would rather not have that happen again even though he considers his ex the prototype.
If you think about the best relationship you ever had, how did it start? Have you considered repeating history so that the next great relationship you have can begin with that blueprint?
